(mmajunkie.com)
When Ben Fodor (6-1-1) – the fighter known for his superhero alter-ego, “Phoenix Jones” – agreed to fight his adopted brother Caros Fodor (10-5), the deal was that they would both continue to train at the AMC Pankration gym in Kirkland, Wash., prior to their bout at WSOF 32 on July 30. But eight weeks out from the fight, according to Ben, AMC Pankration head coach Matt Hume told him he’d need to find somewhere else to train for this one. And now?

The World MMA Association plans to hear Fabio Maldonado’s appeal following his controversial loss to Fedor Emelianenko at Fight Nights Global 50.

Dan Spohn vs. Matt Hamill set for CFFC 60 on Aug. 6
(https:)
Two of the best light heavyweight fighters hailing from the Buckeye State are set to square off, as Dan Spohn will take on Matt Hamill at CFFC 60 on Aug. 6 in Atlantic City. Both fighters are also UFC veterans, and were also featured on “The Ultimate Fighter.” Spohn (13-5), who trains at Ronin Training Center in Columbus, is the former CFFC heavyweight champion. He was stripped of the title after losing a bout to Rodney Wallace in Canada earlier this year. Now, he’ll return to CFFC in his more natural light heavyweight class. “Dragon” is 5-1 since losing his lone UFC bout at The Ultimate Fighter 19 Finale after making the semifinals in the show’s tournament. Four of those wins have come via stoppage, including a TKO victory over Azunna Anyanwu last December that earned him the CFFC title.

Scary late stoppage at Legacy 56
(mixedmartialarts.com)
Being a mixed martial arts ref is thankless. No fighter who ever won, ever, thought to himself "the ref gave me that win." But in a significant number of losses, fighters and camps point to ref incompetence as a factor. Fans too will offer criticism of decisions that must be made in far, far, far less than a second. Further, there is a common misconception that promotions choose the ref. If a ref does not do well, it is not the promotion's fault. Responsibility for choosing and licensing fight refs falls to the relevant Athletic Commission. All that said, what happened in the main event at Legacy FC 56 on Friday night was a little scary.

Fedor vs. Maldonado controversy reveals conflict of interest
(bloodyelbow.com)
Several days ahead of the anticipated Fedor vs. Maldonado showdown, the Russian MMA Union assigned the three judges who would be responsible for the scorecards in the main event: Evgeny Gribkov, Alexey Gorokhov, and Maria Makhmutova. The announcement came as a surprise to many within the industry. The three officials were Russian natives for a contest that pitted a Russian against a Brazilian fighter. The shocking elements was that the Russian MMA Union was actually headed by Fedor himself. The legendary fighter is the unanimously voted president of the association several years prior and still maintained that role behind the scenes.

Maldonado’s manager Stefano Sartori released a statement to MMA Fighting revealing that they will appeal the "strange" loss to Russian MMA Union, which assigned the judges -- and is headed by Emelianenko.
